In response to the many votes my braindead poll from last week, Running Back Depth Chart, received, I feel it's time for a new armchair Monday morning coaching staff poll, and this one should be even more braindead than the last one.
Great kickers are hard to find, but decent kickers are fairly common in this league. As a rookie, Nick Folk was perhaps our team's MVP. But off-season labrum surgery caused him to miss much of training camp, and he simply hasn't been the player he once was.
I have a horrible vision in my head that if the Cowboys cut Folk, he'll spend the remainder of this season and the off-season further rehabbing his hip and come back to his old form for some other team, but those are the chances you sometimes take when your kicker routinely changes the game's momentum by missing very makeable (inside 45 yards) kicks.
Buehler is a possibility, but the coaching staff said he's nowhere near consistent enough to be kicking FG's. Then again, this is the same staff that evaluated Brad Johnson as a good backup quarterback and Barbie Carpenter as our best nickle linebacker.
